After a 2-year-long hiatus because of ethics and diversity scandals, Golden Globes is back and so are the stars who make it what it is. Celebrities kickstarted the award season by bringing their A-game to the red carpet. Fresh off the ‘Wednesday’ high, Jenna Ortega’s outfit was swift departure from the all-black looks she was lately serving and arrived on the red carpet in a soft neutral. Selena Gomez who opted for a classic silhouette with statement sleeves also earned elder sister brownie points for the night as she brought little Gracie as her date. Rihanna looked like royalty as per usual and Angela Bassett was a vision in shimmer.
Special shoutout to team ‘RRR’ as they authentically represented our country while creating history by making ‘Naatu Naatu’ the first-ever Asian song to win the Original Score award at the Golden Globes 2023. Ram Charam repped Tarun Tahiliani in a chic black sherwani and coordinated with his director SS Rajamouli, who wore a red and black dhoti kurta attire for the big night. Standing tall by his side, the director’s wife, Rama Rajamouli shone in simplicity amidst the crowd, as she walked the red carpet and cheered for the team in a saffron and green, handwoven sari.
All and all, it was a big night for the people of colour and the representation in the room was loud and leading. As for the sartorial choices, here’s a complete low-down on the fashion for the night, scroll below for our best-dressed list.
